AR Lenoble Brut Intense Champagne NV 75cl
AR Lenoble Brut Intense Champagne NV 75cl is an elegant champagne blended from the three traditional champagne grape varieties, with 30% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru village of Chouilly, 35% Pinot Noir from the Premier Cru village of Bisseuil and 35% Pinot Meunier from Damery in the Marne Valley. The longer cellar ageing and high proportion of reserve wines, conserved in wooden barrels, allows the dosage to be kept to a minimum and the overall taste to be exquisite.
'MAG 15' shows that the base wines are from the 2015 harvest and this Champagne has been aged in magnum bottles in the cellar - magnum-sized bottles of Champagne are considered by wine experts to be the most favourable bottle size for maturing the wine. The ratio of air to liquid is lower in large format bottles and therefore allows the wine to age much more slowly resulting in a perfectly complex taste.Read more...
